Can Someone Print This for me?

Posted · Can Someone Print This for me?

I was really interested in purchasing a Ultimaker 2, but I will mostly be printing things like the file included. I would like a sample to see if the Ultimaker can handle something like this.

I would like the pushed in parts white, and the popped out parts black, as well as the outside. This Would Really Help me!

Thanks!

    You might want to get a laser cutter instead.  This is trivial to print on a standard FDM printer like the Ultimaker printers.  Assuming it is a reasonable size (say 3cm to 20cm wide - you didn't say what country you are in - please update that in your profile settings location field).

    The only tricky part is the color change - I would probably print this as 3 different "parts" - the bottom and top black parts and a layer of white in the middle (like a sandwhich) but with no "shell" on that middle layer.  This can be done by printing 3 separate parts and doing some editing of the gcode file results or you can put pauses in the print maybe and change filaments at the pauses (never tried this on UM2 - not sure if that will work).  You could make a tiny plugin that does the gcode editing also if you are doing hundreds of different designs.

    Much easier would be to make it in separate parts that snap together.

    Here's something I printed on my UM2:

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
